Dental implants and cosmetic dentistry provide two of the most valuable and exciting treatment options for today's dental patients. Dental implants have created opportunities that were unavailable in the past, while cosmetic dentistry has allowed people to enhance their appearance in ways never before possible. People who have not been to the dentist in many years are often amazed at what can be done to improve their dental health and their smile.
Dental treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth. Cosmetic treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth-coloured fillings, implants and tooth whitening.
Cosmetic dentistry is a relatively new concept and it has broad appeal. The truth is most people want their teeth to be straighter, whiter, and pleasing to the eye when they smile. Fortunately, new technology and procedures have created vast improvements in what a dentist can do. The procedure with the greatest impact is porcelain veneers.
Veneers are an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between front teeth, or repairing chips and cracks. Veneers are thin slices of porcelain. In case of lumineers and future venners as thin as contact lenses. These are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of front teeth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail.
Dental braces are used in orthodontics to align teeth and their position with regard to a person's bite. They are often used to correct underbites, overbites, cross bite and open bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. Orthodontic braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to widen the palate or jaws or otherwise shape the teeth and jaws. While they are mainly used on children and teenagers, adults can also use them.
Teeth that are badly broken, heavily filled, misshaped and discoloured can be restored with a crown. Crowns can be used to restore its appearance and strength. Tooth coloured ceramic crowns are now stronger cosmetically better alternatives to tradtional gold crowns.
Bridges, Dentures and Dental Implants
If a tooth is missing, or needs extracting, there are several ways to fill the space that is left. It is important to try to replace any missing teeth in order to balance the way your jaw bites. If you have several missing teeth this can lead to chewing and digestion problems. These spaces can be filled using bridges, dentures or dental implants.
